We offer the following services to give your pets the best care:
We are here for you if you have any questions concerning the health and well-being of your pets. Feel free to contact us if you need any assistance.
Anesthesia is an important part of our day-to-day work. Whether it’s a general anesthetic for spaying or neutering your pet or for a dental treatment, or a local anesthetic for small lump removals or laceration repairs, it ensures that your pet is given the best treatment with the least amount of discomfort. Both veterinarians and technicians are expertly trained in administrating anesthesia and caring for the patients while they are under.
If you have any questions about the procedure your pet is going to have, bring them to the vet to discuss the day of the surgery. When you drop off your pet, you will meet with the veterinarian and he or she will be happy to answer all of your questions. Your pet’s safety and comfort is our greatest concern!
We offer solutions for a variety of behavioural issues that pet owners are faced with. Behavioural problems can be challenging and frustrating for both pets and pet owners, so it is our goal to work with you towards a solution.
We want you to know that we are here to help and that undesirable behaviours can be corrected. Sometimes it is a medical issue that is causing the bad behaviours. Other reasons can be easily fixed with simple solutions.
Talk to us about the trouble you’re having with your cat or your dog, and we’ll do our best to help bring peace and harmony back to your household.
Dental care is vital to the overall health of any pet. Dental disease can lead to health issues with the heart, liver, and kidneys, and it can affect the entire body through the bloodstream. In fact, 80 percent of dogs and 70 percent of cats over three years of age suffer from some form of dental disease, making it the most common pet health issue among our pet population.
In spite of these disturbing facts, many pet owners are not aware of the importance of dental care to their pet’s health. There are a lot of different ways to improve your pet’s dental hygiene, including home brushing, dental chews, and regular inspection.
The most effective way to protect your pet from dental disease is through professional cleanings. We perform thorough cleanings here at Animal Clinic of Regina, including the area beneath the gums that you can’t see or access at home.
If your pet has brown/yellow teeth, bad breath, or is having difficulty eating, these could all be signs of dental disease. Come see us for a free dental check (one per year, per animal) and to set up a dental cleaning. Please call us at (306) 525-5244 today to learn more and schedule your pet’s dental cleaning.
Nutrition is so important for pets throughout their lives. As animals age, their nutritional needs change. There are puppy, kitten, adult, and senior diets to accommodate your dog’s and/or cat’s changing needs. There are also diets made to help pets with certain diseases and conditions. It is important to discuss your animals’ diets with our staff when you visit our clinic.
A very common problem in pets is obesity. We know! Food = love, and it’s so hard to resist those eyes! However, obesity can be a real problem. It can lead to diabetes and even orthopedic problems down the road. Talk to one of our friendly staff members to get your pets on a diet and exercise plan to get them back on track to a healthier life.
The Animal Clinic of Regina is pleased to offer electrocardiography to our patients. Heart disease is quite common in pets, so having the ability to monitor it is necessary. For this reason, we are proud to be able to offer electrocardiograms (ECG or EKG) to our patients. It is a non-invasive test, because we only have to place clips on certain locations on a pet’s body, but we can gain so much information from it.
An ECG/EKG is a record of the electrical activity of the heart. We evaluate heart rhythm of your pets, and we can also look for any arrhythmias and other abnormalities. An ECG/EKG can also be used to look for heart enlargement, which is a very common sign of heart disease. ECG/EKGs are used not only to diagnose heart disease but also to monitor the progress of patients diagnosed with it.
If you have any questions about heart disease or electrocardiography, feel free to contact us today at (306) 525-5244.
In Case of an Emergency
If you have an emergency outside of our regular business hours, we recommend that you contact the 24-Hour Animal Care Center at 306-761-1449. Should further or ongoing care be required, we are happy to be of service should you wish to transfer a hospitalized pet to our clinic the next day. All of our clients who see an emergency veterinarian after hours are entitled to have the pet examined at our clinic the next day for no additional charge. Additional medications, tests, and treatments will incur additional charges.
The Animal Clinic of Regina is proud to offer house calls! Just about everything that we offer in the exam room at our clinic we can now do in your home.
Some animals just don’t enjoy any part of going to the vet, and we understand that. It can be a scary place, especially if your pet isn’t feeling well to begin with. So why not let us come to you?
This is one of the rare times we actually accept appointments! We offer house calls Tuesdays through to Saturdays from noon to 3pm.
Examples of what we can offer include annual exams, vaccinations, subcutaneous fluids, lump checks, skin diagnoses, ear inspections, blood and urine collection, end-of-life care, and euthanasia.
If you would like more information or want to set up an appointment, call us at (306) 525-5244.
We are pleased to have a laboratory in our clinic. With an in-house lab, we are able to perform many diagnostic tests quickly and efficiently.
The best part of being able to run these tests in-clinic is that we can diagnose your pets sooner so they can start feeling better even faster. There are some tests for which we can have results in just a few minutes – such as complete blood count, kidney and liver functions, and blood sugar – instead of having to wait at least a day (or more) to get them from the provincial laboratory.
If your pets are not feeling well, come see us so you can get answers faster than you’d expect. We will do everything we can to make sure your pets are feeling better as soon as possible!
Laparoscopic procedures are minimally invasive and generally provide quicker healing and recovery time. Some examples of when we would use the scope include removing fox tails from a dog’s throat, checking for a foreign body, and taking biopsies along the digestive tract or in the lungs for further testing.
Dr. Sawa has received extensive training in the various types of laparoscopic procedures, and often these patients are referred to us from other clinics in the city.
Laparoscopy reduces bleeding and swelling for patients, making the recovery process easier. It minimizes the chance of infection that can come with regular surgery. Overall, laparoscopic procedures make it easier on your pets so they will be back to their normal selves more quickly.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact today.
Thousands of dogs and cats are lost each year, but there is a way to help get them back to their homes: microchips!
Here at the Animal Clinic of Regina, we are proud to offer microchipping to help keep our clients’ pets safe. It is a simple procedure that inserts a tiny chip underneath your dog’s or cat’s skin and is quick and relatively painless. Once a microchip is implanted, owners then register their vital information into a database.
Any time pets are lost, a veterinarian or shelter will scan them, hoping to be able to return them back to you! Save yourself the heartache and stress of a lost pet and bring them to us to be microchipped.
The Animal Clinic of Regina is known for our orthopedics. Dr. Greg Harasen has been treating countless dog’s and cat’s lameness for over 20 years. While mostly retired, Dr. Harasen still spends one day a week, from spring until fall, performing various orthopedic surgeries at Animal Clinic of Regina.
Joining Dr. Harasen in the orthopedic surgical suite is Dr. Lorilee Sereda. Dr. Sereda started her orthopedic training in 2015 and has worked alongside Dr. Harasen ever since. She fills in when Dr. Harasen is away and is working towards being our main orthopedic surgeon when Dr. Harasen truly retires.
If your pet has trouble walking or has injured a leg, call us to find out about our orthopedic schedule.
The Animal Clinic of Regina is dedicated to providing the Regina community with the highest level of service. That’s why we offer an in-house pharmacy to meet all your pet’s needs.
We want you to get your medications and products from reputable and trusted suppliers, so we have stocked our pharmacy with a huge inventory of quality brands and products that are properly stored under optimal conditions.
We carry popular items like flea and tick preventatives, as well as heartworm preventatives and medications to ease arthritis and joint pain.
If you already have a prescription with us, we ask that you call 24 hours before you need the medication to allow us time to gather it for you.
Please note that much like human pharmacies, your pet must have been in to see us within the last year to continue receiving medication.
When your pets are not feeling well, we might recommend radiographs, also known as x-rays. They help us to see what is going on inside your pets without surgery.
Here at the Animal Clinic of Regina, we are excited about digital radiology and what we can do with it for our clients. It has always been our goal to give our clients the very best care, and one way we can do that is with digital x-rays.
It is so quick! We can see the images seconds after we take the films. It also saves time because we don’t have to repeat films if they are too dark or too light. We can simply change the contrast! As well, we can track the changes in your pet over the years as all the images are saved.
While we always hope your pet will never need x-rays, it’s nice to know we can do it quickly and painlessly if they do.
Surgery at the Animal Clinic of Regina ranges from scheduled operations to spay or neuter dogs and cats to emergency procedures like cesareans or foreign body surgeries. Whether it’s planned or not, surgery is stressful for the animal and their owners!
Our surgical team is up to date with the latest medical procedures. They are constantly learning to give their patients the very best care with the least amount of stress, and we contact you once the surgery is completed so you know how everything went.
Pick-up time is generally after 4pm unless otherwise discussed with the veterinarian. You will be given instructions for the care of your pet, as well as any medications they may require. If you have questions about your animal’s recovery once you get home, we are only a phone call away.
Ultrasounds use sound waves to look inside your pet without us having to actually look inside your pet!
While x-rays can tell us one side of the story, ultrasonography can give us the other side, with some extra details but without the harmful radiation. They can be quick and are usually painless.
Your dog or cat lies on a foam bed shaped like a V, most often on their backs. The veterinarian may shave some of your pet’s hair away so they can get the best view of the inner workings (or not workings) of your dog or cat. Using a special gel on the end of the probe, the vet runs the ultrasound along the abdomen and can capture the images as they go. Depending on the severity of the problem, this may take as little as five minutes or as long as 30 minutes. Technicians are with your pet at all times to ensure they feel safe and secure while the vet does the exam.
When the ultrasound exam is finished, your dog or cat will be returned to you (if you’ve chosen to wait). The veterinarian will discuss her or his findings with you and offer a plan for treatment so your pet can feel better once again.
If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact today.
